Composition Lesson

Composition lessons are for anyone who wishes to compose music, for any instrument, emsemble and/or electronics music.

My teaching method combines various approaches and styles, supporting practice with theoretical knowledge, and most important developing creativity and helping the student in making their imagionary visions come real.

For each student a different palate of tools is offered, according to the student's musical wishes and ambitions.

I teach the basis of western-music composition - theory, harmony, counterpoint, score-reading, solfege, rhythm, analysis and more.
Further I suggest broad overview of world, jazz, pop, new/contemporary music, various styles in electronic music (popular and experimental), improvisatory compositions, graphic notation, text and game pieces, music for theater, film and dance and interdicsiplinary works which combine music with other art fields.

I really enjoyed my first lesson with Maya. The lesson was very relaxed, but at the same time she gave great guidance as to where I could begin to improve my technique.
Violin & Viola lessons are for anyone who wishes to start playing, continue or rusume studying, for both children and adults. ​I combine various practices which I believe create a greater whole. I teach basic to advance techniques in reprtoire which corresponds with the student's personality and ranges from classical to contemporary, improvisation, world, folk, pop, rock and more. I combine repertoire with improvisation, composition, movement and other an interdicsiplinary manner. My method is personal and about listening to the student wishes and ideas. If you're intrigued, I'd be happy to play, teach and exchange ideas with you!

Lucie
French Class with a Native Speaker
// Content of the class // I want to enable my pupils to speak French in their everyday life: what's the point of learning a language if you only know academic sentences? Moreover, I wish to make the students discover a little bit more about French culture: I personally love music, cinema and art and I would love to share these passions! Of course if you already have a good level in French we will focus on Grammar and use advanced teaching materials: the main word to remember is adaptation! // About me // I am a native French speaker, wiling to make the best of my free time during my Exchange year at the Universiteit van Amsterdam.
